Another spaghetti and sandal flick, this time with Cameron Mitchell desperate for work. Very loose version of Caesar's Commentaries.
May appear choppy at times, due to conversion from a 24-fps QT. Not recommended for downloading by whiners -instead, better upload your own higher quality version.

Why not upload the original format too? Or, if that's not practical (or worthwhile), why not just post the disclaimer (sans epithets) and let visitors make up their own minds about downloading it? After all, that's what the descriptions and reviews are really for. Even with a super-high-speed connection, video files are large enough that most people prefer to know what they are getting before spending the time to download one. Encoding and print quality issues are just as relevant to that decision as is the quality of the production itself, and just as on-topic for a review.
If you feel so angry that you must insult people for writing about encoding and print quality issues, another solution is to walk across your street and punch your neighbor in the nose. That way, you can enjoy a few years of free room and board shared with like-minded people, with whom you can "mix it up" to your heart's content. At the very least, you won't have to listen to any more people whinging at your uploads.

Yes, this film is adventurous and it is action packed, but it is something else: boring. The acting was dull and not convincing. I like films in historical settings very much so I watched the whole movie and was slightly entertained at times but I was happy that I had something to do aside so I won´t go asleep.
As for historical accuracy: Forget what this film tells you about the battle of Alesia. It is all wrong except that Caesar won and Vercingetorix lost. (Not to be misunderstood: I do not expect historical accuracy of films like this.)
